Following the death of William Key, Strumpshaw Steam Museum says that it will be business as usual in 2016.
The museum will continue to be run by its volunteers under the guidance of Tom Laird. The annual three day steam rally held on the late spring bank holiday will also be run by the museum.
For the museum, Kiki Angelrath said, "I'm delighted that Michael Curtis, a rally steward for many years, has agreed to organise the rally in 2016.
"My thanks to Paul Worbey and his family and helpers for running the rally since William's father, James Key, died."
Last year saw the museum undergo a revamp. Work continued on the refurbishment of The Ark which will be running again in 2016. Under wraps is an exciting new exhibit and several of the special events run last year will be returning. The 2015 season did, however. finish on an extremely sad note with the death, following an accident at his home, of volunteer Gerry Bullock.
